Walt Disney World Resort Sees Ticket Price Increase for 2020



It’s that time of year again! Time for the annual Walt Disney World price increase!

The Walt Disney World Resort uses date-based ticket pricing. With this system, Guests are able to purchase tickets using an interactive online calendar that displays different ticket pricing based on the dates that Guests are looking to visit the parks.

The pricing for a one-day ticket remains at $109 and the most you’ll spend on a one-day ticket is still $159. By comparison, a 10-day ticket now ranges from $52 per day to $67 per day.

To add on the Park Hopper option, it’s $65-85 more, depending on ticket length. The breakdown is as follows:

  • $65 per ticket for 1-day tickets
  • $75 per ticket for 2 to 3-day tickets
  • $85 per ticket for 4 to 10-day tickets

If you would like to add on the Park Hopper Plus option, it’s $20 more than the Park Hopper on its own. (Park Hopper Plus gets you access to the water parks, Wide World of Sports, Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course, the two mini golf courses, and new for 2020, Footgolf and the NBA Experience.)

  • $85 per ticket for 1-day tickets
  • $95 per ticket for 2 to 3-day tickets
  • $105 per ticket for 4 to 10-day tickets

The best thing to do is to look at the interactive calendar to see what the pricing will be on the days you are looking to travel. To purchase tickets, Guests will need to first choose the number of days they are looking to visit the parks. Then, you’ll need to choose the date you want your tickets to start (this is the very first day you want to use your tickets). The calendar shows per-day pricing based on your start date and the length of ticket you will be purchasing.

Once your start date is selected, you’ll see the total cost for your tickets, as well as the date range for how long you’ll have to use your tickets. The period of validity ranges from 4 days for 2-day tickets to 14 days for 10-day tickets. You’ll then be able to choose how many adult and how many child tickets you will be purchasing. You can also choose to add on the Park Hopper option, allowing you to go from park to park on the same day.

For those who need to make changes to their tickets, like a different date, upgrade to a Park Hopper, or add days, you can easily do that, as long as it’s done prior to the start date you selected. While there is not a specific change fee, you will have to pay any additional costs for tickets that cost more than what you initially paid. Also note that if you change to a day that actually offers cheaper tickets, you don’t get a refund or credit.
